A private scuffle off-the-ball provides some entertainment, but referee takes no action other than awarding Grenoble a penalty

1:34pm

Grenoble have made lively start and earn a penalty 

1:31pm

And they're off

1:27pm

Welsh's 'victory' in Grenoble means they still have an outside chance of topping Pool 5 and reaching the quarter-finals. But realistically, they need five-point wins in their next two matches to have any chance of overhauling table-toppers Stade Francais.

1:24pm

Kick-off is at 1.30pm, maybe to allow our French visitors a spot of Christmas shopping afterwards?

1:20pm

London Welsh are looking to build on the unexpected boost they received this week when they were awarded a bonus-point victory instead of defeat in Grenoble. The French side won last Friday's match 20-9, but were found to have fielded an ineligible player, so Welsh picked up a 28-0 win instead.
